Re: 1296 yd PD with 6BR

Great Shooting!
I spend a lot more time and money shooting prairie dogs and marmots than I do anything else. Longest PD is 683 with a 22-250, and I got a couple marmots this year over 1100. Marmots are down for the year now, so I'll be spending time in Utah shooting PD's this winter hoping to break the 1320 yard mark with my LR 7 Rem mag.
I plan to have that 22-250 rebarreled next year and had been thinking a fast twist .243. Looks like that 6BR needs a look.

I started my varmint hunting with a fast twist .243. It was a great shooter, but when the barrel got burned out I went with the 6BR. Why? Compare the velocity of a 105 grain bullet from each. They go literally the same speed, but the 6BR does it with 30% less powder and a lot less recoil.

Thats exactly what makes it so special....cheaper to run, less recoil, superb inherent accuracy, minimal recoil, great ballistics, long barrel life.
